Event | The Butterfly Project 6th Birthday Party, D - DAY

Tuesday 30 April 2019

Here we are at the party! Well, technically I literally just finished posting the 'Nine' i.e. the nine Instagram posts that all of us agreed to publish as show of support towards sponsors and of course, the community so tonight I'm going to talk about what went down on last Saturday but first thing first, in case you're wondering why my InstaStory background was still at the capital city just now it is because I AM STILL IN THE CITY but more on that later.

Now, let's talk about the venue!

I've got to say that the event space is actually quite nice; the whole garden, floral decorations, balloons and with the industrial vibe in the background, now that is an avant-garde event space so yes, I'm loving the whole concept! The theme colour for our attires are white and pastels so everything just tied together.

I have to say though, the space was a bit crowded for 100 people especially with more than half of us were wearing long dresses. I was wearing pants but I haven't alter them so. 



The moment I arrived at my table, there's a box of Yves Rocher goodies, cupcake, super cute pink balloons with little butterflies on it, macaroon and small gift box were waiting at my seat and those just excite me because I wasn't expecting anything, really! Good thing they prepared a paper bag for me to bring the stuffs home as my handbag was already full with I don't even remember what! lol


In my 30 years of life, I've only ate macaroon once at Christmas dinner and that was it! It's too sweet in general but I'm glad this one that we've got from @macarons.bymadeleine  was not as sweet as I'd expect it be so that was pleasant to my taste.

We have all received a small gift from The Butterfly Project; that pink heart necklace that is too cute not to be worn! Thank you, Tammy! Each of us was given that pink flower balloon that I wanted to bring home so bad with me!


Talk about food, all of us butterflies were served with array of bite-sized delicacies! For the main course, we were served with pasta salad with mix nuts and roasted chicken. I've got to say that I just love that it goes with the mint lemonade!


As for desserts, we got the mini fruit tart, lemon curd cake slices, one of my all-time fave; fruit pavlova and the cutest Butterfly Cream Cupcake Swirl with butterflies fondant! Overall, it was nice and I do appreciate the food being served in mini portions for early evening event as I was in between meal times and I just love the spread with flowers all over; spring and flirty, indeed! There were also mini burgers, mini pies, assorted mini sandwiches and dim sum, siew mai even mini pao filled with black pepper chicken for appetizers. Thank you so much to Ms. Lydia @jomparty for the lovely spread! 😍😍😍 Such a pleasure of meeting you too!

Ah, just look at the cute cupcake! We even sang happy birthday song at the beginning of the event! Again, happy 6th birthday The Butterfly Project!

I may not be familiar with much of local Malaysian comedy scene but who's to say I can't enjoy Joanne Kam witty jokes! All of us definitely cracked up; even saw some fell of their chair! lol Definitely can say that we're all enjoying ourselves!


From the event space, selfie garden all the way to making our own flower crown during the workshop, @avantgardeblooms have truly brightens up our day with beautiful and crafty floral decorations!


From beautiful roses to daisies all the way to baby's breaths, I just love finding myself among all these flowers! Although the flower crown-making was kind of short, it was very much fun as I love arranging the flowers! I really wish I can bring home some of them!

Are you a coffee or tea person? I'm a little bit of both as I usually drink my coffee in the morning and tea in the evening so it was such a pleasure I've had at @tsticksmy sampling booth while at the party as it was indeed my tea time and their teas are so nice! Can I say the packaging is genius by the way?

Special for this Mother's Day, you can preorder the lovely Gift Box containing a preserved mini bouquet, mixed flavours of T-Sticks, a bottle of honey with honey stick and a 'Pop Me' balloon with a little surprise inside! Check out their Instagram for more info!


As you can see above, there are several variants of tea that you can choose from! Comes in 15 sachets per box.

I've tried their Perfectly Peach Tea and I've got hooked instantly. As I've always been a fan of Earl's Grey, this tea tastes so mildly refreshing which is perfect for winding down after a long day at work.


What's a birthday party without some balloons! Especially these super cute balloons from @theblossomballoons with some tied on our chairs and there are also big balloons around the event space. I've enjoyed myself so much at the Selfie Garden and there's the handmade birthday gift from them to us Butterflies; the cutest pink paper flower with a small balloon on a stick plus there's a cute paper butterflies attached on it! I really do appreciate when things given to me are handmade; with all the love and care.


You might know this but I usually feature Korean beauty products but not today as I've discovered a French beauty brand that I've only heard or seen about it; @yvesrochermy! What a wonderful coincidence that we Butterflies at The Butterfly Project are also celebrating our 6th birthday while the brand is celebrating theirs at 60! With that mentioned, I'd like to wish the happiest 60th birthday to Yves Rocher Malaysia and whether you're already a fan of their products or you would like to try their green beauty products, here's your chance to grab some!

Frankly, I'm still feeling overwhelmed after going through so many interesting happenings within the past 4 days! I'm going to take a shower now and oh! My! God! I didn't fly back to KK this morning and yes, I'm still in the capital city, gratefully staying with a friend after failing to secure an airbndb; just for tonight though as I've received invitations to 2 upcoming events by Guardian Malaysia and Rejoice Malaysia so I have decided to extend my staycation until this weekend! Plus, my parents will be flying in tomorrow's evening so I'll be staying with them so yes! I am so excited and I will definitely be updating you guys on that later. 

So I guess that's all of it! I'll be seeing you guys on my next post! Annyeong~

Event | The Butterfly Project 6th Birthday Party, D - 1

Sunday 28 April 2019

I decided to attend The Butterfly Project; blogger community right here in Malaysia about a month before the actual party (Tammy managed to convince me!) so yes, here I am in the Twin Tower city and even though the party was yesterday, my heart still throbbing from all the excitement of meeting fellow bloggers and social media influencers!

I flew in from my hometown Kota Kinabalu on Friday, went to the party yesterday and right now I'm all settled in this OYO-managed studio apartment literally 10-minute drive from KLCC and in this first part of the post for the said event, I'm going to talk about my little journey of coming here. Let's jump right in, shall we?

Flew in together with fellow Sabahan bloggers (from left) Geraldine (@wanyyg) and Fay (@frydolinafay) via AirAsia. Our flight was in the afternoon so we'd sure had plenty of time to reach our airbnb for the weekend.


Took my time to indulge myself wearing sheet mask (I know, it's a short flight time) as I didn't do much skincare in the morning. I went with the latest launch from Althea for their A'bloom collection, Water-Me-Long: Moisturising Watermelon Mask Sheet which I find lovely and I've already placed a bulk-order for it.


I don't think I ever sit through a single flight without snacking while on-board and my god, I do miss having this super crunchy and tasty Nacho chips and Guacamole dip! I honestly don't know where I can actually buy this from on land. Let me know if you do.


Once we're landed, we took a shuttle to 1Utama shopping mall and as we're all quite starving, we headed to Auntie Anne's for a quick pretzels run.

As I need to pick up some new pants for the event, I thought to swing by Debenhams at The Curve before meeting up with my best friend and a fellow skincare enthusiast to have dinner at Oiso, a Korean restaurant. 

I'd totally forgot to take photos of us while having our dinner at the restaurant and I don't quite remember the exact name for these dishes but I'm sure that's bulgogi; marinated meat in their special sauce while mine is chicken version with a spicier sauce.

Thanks to Caroline (@mask.matters) who drove us to our airbnb so after resting for a little bit that night, I unpacked my luggages to make sure I've got everything for the event; pressing my clothes and whatnot, preparing the exchange gifts for Malaysian Asian Beauty community meetup which I had today and of course, planning and curating my social media postings for the event.

If you didn't know, I'm a huge LANEIGE fan and their skincare products are the ones that frame my whole skincare routine so I do buy their products a lot for the past 5 years hence I've got a varieties of their Gift-With-Purchase including those luggages; the 24in was actually from 2017 Holiday, the 2-tone 20in luggage that's laying in the floor is from last year's Holiday. and the luggage organiser where I've packed my set of clothes and toiletries in. I've also started getting some products from Sulwhasoo so those light rose gold luggage organisers are one of the GWPs that I've received while buying from their Parkson counter.

The above is actually some of the makeup items that I've used for the party. The theme for me is obviously dusty pink so I've picked up some Fenty duo blush-highlighter, their Glass Bomb and highlighter. For base, I was sticking with my current cushion from LANEIGE, the Layering Cover Cushion and mine in No. 33 Cinnamon.

Before heading out, I placed an order from Wingstop, The Curve via GrabFood for their Classic Wings, Voodoo Fries, Onion Rings with some delicious dips!

Now, it's time to get ready for the event! Woohoo!

My humble assemble for the event: Top and outer jacket are from TUCZ, pants from Debenhams, shawl is from TudungPeople Fleur du Jour Winter collection and handbag is from Charles & Keith.


My best friend, Ainul (@ainul_mz). We've been friends for about 8 years now; all the way back from our university days.

All dressed up and looking (and feeling) pretty!


How do we look? Sumandak Sabah bah ini~

Off we went to the party! So that's all from me for now and I'll be updating more on the event tomorrow night hopefully or maybe while waiting for my flight at the airport on Tuesday. I'll talk to you guys very soon! Annyeong~
